Thanks to Von (dabaone@yahoo.com), we have a little peace of Ted's history to listen to.  Ted 
toured with Meatloaf's band, The Neverland Express.  Here is a picture of the band from the 
1982 tour, with Ted's GORGEOUS mug in the back by Meatloaf, and a few other stills in concert:


                    Picture courtesy of:  http://www.meat-loaf.nl/band_boven.htm

Mark Doyle (ex-Lou Reed) on guitar, Steve Hunter (ex-Alice Cooper) on guitar, Davey Johnstone on guitar, 
Steve Buslowe on bass, Paul Jacobs on piano, George Meyer on keyboards, Eric Troyer on vocals, 
Pam Moore as a singer, Terry Williams on drums
, Ted Neeley and Meatloaf.

Also, thanks to Von, here is a link to listen to a song Ted sang lead on during that tour,
called:  "Come In The Night":

http://www.realmofdreams.com/steinman/sounds.html

Website Notes on this song/medley  (did Ted spell his name the way they spelled it below at the time - I wonder?):

When Meat toured for his Dead Ringer album he included some of Jim's Neverland material, though he did not perform it himself. This task was left up to his band. One piece his band performed was titled Come In The Night This was actually a combination of Come In The Night from The Dream Engine, and The Formation Of The Pack from Neverland. Here is Come In The Night, performed by Ted "Jesus Christ Superstar" Neely and the Neverland Express.

IMPORTANT NEWS!!!

On MAY 1st 2009 The live performance of ULYSSES THE CONCERT DVD and CD was officially be released on CDBABY.COM


Ulysses - The Greek Suite - A Rock Odyssey (6/8/78)                               "Ulysses" (One-Night Concert in Los Angeles)

         






http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_-44WLltyY

This clip, featuring live performances of "Polyphemus" and "Find Yourself," is from a pro shot film of the original concert performance in 1978, and was posted on YouTube by Carlos Luevano, guitarist for the project. Gibson (johnlenonomusic@gmail.com) posted it to our FTNL list  To quote him, as permitted:

"30 years ago [video producer's name removed]'s company gave me the original commercial size video master of Ulysses The Greek Suite. I played it once and stored it for all these years. I recently contacted the producer of the project and told him I had the original copy. He said my copy was the only one in existence. The producer had gotten all the rights back from 20th Century Fox and has given me his blessing to produce the DVD. I am the lead guitarist on the album and DVD. The footage is crystal clear, there was no degradation from 30 years of storage. The quality of the DVD is far superior to the quality on
YouTube. It will be a couple more weeks before Ulysses the Greek Suite is for sale online."

Here is the initial post on the Ulysses DVD, by Sherry (Message #3154) on the NOTR Guestbook on 2/3/09:

Does anyone remember rocking out while watching Ted perform Polyphemus and Find Yourself, from the 1978 Ulysses concert on Youtube?

ULYSSES THE GREEK SUITE UPDATE!...Drum roll please...Finally...an official update that many of us have been waiting for! I found out that the Ulysses the Greek Suite on DVD is in the final phase of production and is set for release within a month. I was also advised that the official release date will be made available sooner than later. The issues surrounding the copyright of the product have been resolved and a sample of the concert is back on Youtube at this link:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_-44WLltyY

I think it's exciting news, and I can't wait for such an incredible treat! It's unbelievable that the video has been buried away in the archives for 30 years. How often do you find a jewel like this? Ted with the band A-440 just rock. As soon as I hear anything else, I'm always happy to share with all my friends here. Did I mention that I'm soooo excited and that I can't wait? big grin big grin big grin

When the rest of this information becomes available, it will be posted, with permission, on FTNL - and here.

UPDATE:  2/23/09





Here is the latest clip from Ulysses on YouTube. It is a medley of numbers from the concert, including part of the Overture by A-440, Free Them (Ted),  What Will I Say and Ithaca (Yvonne Iverson), and Find Yourself (Ted). This video was posted on the new site for the DVD:  http://www.ulyssestheconcert.com/ and this announcement:

Bobby wrote these liner notes for Teddy Neeley's first Lp on Capitol in 1966

What's a TEDDY NEELEY? I'll tell you. A TEDDY NEELEY is a five-foot, six-inch, 125-pound atomic reactor plant about to turn on the whole world. A TEDDY NEELEY is a genuine young man with a sincere desire to be a performer's performer. A TEDDY NEELEY is a 22 year old musical personality with at least 22 years of success in front of him. Why do I say all this? Because I am a TEDDY NEELEY fan. I have seen him on stage two or three times in the past year and each time the audience reaction was the same as mine. They paid attention, they grooved and they waxed enthusiastic when his performance was over. It is foolish to ponder how a young man has all the natural ability at, quote, such an early age, unquote, because the answer is very simple. The world no longer is a place in which age has anything to do with sensitivity or ability. A TEDDY NEELEY IS young, but as is the case with his generation, he has been around a thousand years. There is a lot of music in this package. There is a lot of TEDDY NEELEY in that music. There is a lot of music in that TEDDY NEELEY. Let's get it on.
